My world...

I am so excited to share the news about a new group I'm joining! Karyn over at Rufydoof is starting a new Facebook Group and encouraging beaders of all levels to join. The idea is to pick out a readily available pattern for everyone in the group to create. As the group is creating the pattern, members can share their struggles or tips with others and get encouragement from each other! I love this idea! Go on over to her Facebook page and let her know you want to join!

In other beading news....I am getting myself ready to visit blogs for the Bead Soup Blog Party!

I am taking Lori's advice. I copied and pasted the list onto a Word document. But because there are so many wonderful participants - it was FIVE PAGES LONG! So I formatted my page to have 1/2 inch margins and 2 columns...then changed the font to a size 10. The list is now taking up only 2 pages of all 362 participants!

And in the rest of my world....Jackson is working on a K'nex project. He's only on step 15 for the instructions- I can't wait to see the result after he completes all 92 steps!

Nothing made me laugh harder this weekend than when my husband invited the dog up to the table Sunday morning...

Oh....and the Hurricane Irene felled tree is finally gone!


  1. Thanks for the tip Amy! I'll head over there now. :)

  2. Cute little puppy Amy, and thanks for the tip on the facebook group.

  3. Thanks for mentioniong my little group Amy - Shirley and Therese have already dropped in to say hello. I am just finalising the details of the 3 patterns I have selected for us to choose from so all should be revealed in the next day... getting very excited!

    I will share your Bead Soup party journey with you. I have taken part the last 2 years but gave this year a miss as I was already planning my beading group and to be honest I found visiting 200+ blogs last year very overwhelming...I know I don't have to visit every one but I felt everyone deserved to have their piece viewed and commented on.

    I can't wait to see what you create!

    Karyn ♥
